Halloween and Fall are the perfect time to bring some seasonal reading to your classroom. This packet contains an informational article on how a fungus in the rye crop may have caused the mysterious symptoms blamed on witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts from 1691 through 1693.

After a close reading of the article, students will answer questions on main ideas, reading comprehension, and vocabulary. Last is a fun, coordinating creative writing prompt

The reading level is sixth and seventh grade. It is in the Lexile stretch band for fifth grade and the basic level for eighth grade.
